Our students are now enjoying the full use of our brand new, exciting facilities. They are benefiting fully from our incredible resources.
The recent building programme amounted to an £11 million investment into the education provision of our students. Every pupil also now has an iPad to assist with their learning and access to a wide range of resources, increasing both their progress and enjoyment of lessons within each subject.
All the buildings have been designed to take into account the latest in education technology and initiatives, including a multi-million pound new Science Wing with a Super Lab where students thrive in a ‘hands on’ learning environment.
There are many opportunities to be involved in exciting learning programmes, where students are developing their leadership skills and growing in confidence using a wide range of IT which gives them individual access through our wireless systems. Our Design and Technology zone offers a pro-kitchen for budding chefs and a range of workshop experiences. Art, Music and Drama are housed in our new three story building and is the ‘heartbeat’ of the academy, we have our own radio station, recording facilities, dance facilities alongside many creative opportunities for exhibiting and performing both within our academy community and beyond.
Our values of aspiration, integrity and respect are core to our learning community. Our ‘Heart Spaces’ within each ‘College’, give space, light and open, enjoyable learning, self study, social, supportive and exciting spaces.
